Maui Gable Roofs

GABLE ROOFS

Gabled roofs have two sloping sides that come together at a ridge, creating end walls with a triangular extension, called a gable, at the top. Also known as pitched or peaked roofs, gable is some of the most popular roofs in the country. They’re easily recognized by their triangular shape and will easily shed water and snow, provide more space for an attic or vaulted ceilings and allow more ventilation. Their 

simple design makes them easy to build and cheaper than more complex designs.

It can be covered with almost any type of material including asphalt shingles, cedar shakes, Terra Cotta tiles, metal, and clay or concrete tiles. However, if the roof also contains hips and valleys, it should either be shingled or roofed with metal shingles or standing seam to help prevent any future leaks.

Types of Gable Roofs

Side Gable: This is a basic pitched roof that has two equal panels pitched at an angle, and meets at a ridge in the middle of a building. The triangle section can be left open for an open gable roof, or it can be enclosed for a boxed gable roof.

Crossed Gable: This is made of two gable roof sections put together at a right angle. The two ridges are perpendicular to each other and the lengths, pitches or heights may or may not differ from each other.

Front Gable: This roof is placed at the entrance of the house and is often seen in Colonial style houses.

Dutch Gable Roof: This is a hybrid of a gable and hip roof. A gable roof is placed at the top of a hip roof for more space and enhanced aesthetic appeal.
